Kalderash
   1) Name of a clan derived from the Romanian word calderar (coppersmith). Many emigrated from Romania after the end of slavery in the 19th century. They are probably the largest Romany clan, numbering nearly one million, spread throughout the world. Many men still work in the traditional trade of repairing copper utensils, while their women practice palm-reading.
   2) A dialect of the Romani language.
